Master Cylinder Question

Post by charinex01 » Sun Mar 29, 2020 7:19 am

My Friend gave me a used Master Cylinder that was from his 37 Packard 120 that he sold a few years ago and I am going to rebuild for a future backup. Some time in the past it was disassembled and I now need a diagram of the correct order of the parts for reassembly. I can't seem to find one? I did look through a couple of old Motor Manuals and of course the Packard Manual. Does anyone have a cutaway type of diagram that will show the position of all components? :?:

Visit www.packardinfo.com and click on the Literature and Manuals line on the left side. They have an owner's manual for the 1936 120 there. On page 45 there is a cutaway view of the master cylinder. According to the 1935-1941 Parts List (also on the Packard Info site) the master cylinder used in 1936 is the same as in the 1937 model. The Parts list also has a sketch of the disassembled master cylinder and its parts on page 11 of the brake section.
